Posted by Thomas On October - 28 - 2010

Thanks to advances in web technology, you can these days get tons of free Web Applications to suit your every need. These applications are increasingly powerful and usable. As a result, applications like Gmail, Facebook and Google Docs are soaring in popularity.

For those of you who haven’t been introduced to Live Mesh before, it’s a great way of synchronising folders between two or more computers, as long as they are both on the internet, quite similar to DropBox. It also gives you remote access capabilities, and 5GB of online space using SkyDrive, so that you can access all of your data online.

And for those of  you that have heard of it, or use it, you’ll need to know that the beta will be discontinued as of March 31st, 2011. In the last few days, they have sent e-mails out letting users know as well. If you currently have it, you’ll need to remove it from your computer, and install Live Mesh 2011.

Posted by Thomas On September - 15 - 2010

The HTC Phone has a weather clock application which drizzles, shines and shows clouds depending on your current location. The application stays on the home screen of the phone.

The same application is now available for Windows 7.  Combining a clock, date and weather service, all in one application. What makes this stand out from all the other gadgets it that  the HTC Home Gadget makes heavy use of animations making your entire desktop into a professional weather and news (upcoming widget support) station.
